Hi. I am confused about Haviland's usage of matrilateral cross cousin.
In a cultural anth text, he explains matrilateral cross cousin as ego's
mother's brother's offspring or as ego's father's sister's offspring.
Would not matrilateral cross cousin just be ego's mother's brother's
offspring -- and patrilateral cross cousin be ego's father's sister's
offspring. So, is he confusing a subset with a set? Or am I confused?
Thanks. Jan Wilson (looking for her kindred) G1824303 at nmsuvm1.nmsu.edu
